The lowest common multiple of two numbers is 36, one number is 12, what might the other number be?

1. This is like looking for a common denominator.

1/12 + 1/9 your lowest common denominator would be 36 because both numbers go into 36

If the lowest common multiple is 36 then the other number could be 9.
